Lever PressBeth Bouloukos, Director
Lever Press is grounded on a set of values, and guided by clear commitments. The values on which we’re basing our work are:
- producing the highest quality scholarship in an economically sustainable model
- embodying and reflecting the values of the liberal arts, and
- leading the way in establishing best practices for born-digital, peer reviewed, open access monograph publishing.
As a press aligned with the ethos and mission of liberal arts colleges, we seek out, identify, evaluate, and advocate for transformative scholarship that spurs creative dialogue within and between traditional fields of inquiry, emphasizes disciplinary innovation, draws upon new models of collaborative research, and strives to reach the broadest audience possible. We value:
- leadership and the courage to push existing boundaries
- diverse voices and viewpoints
- the principles of equity and social justice
- building community among our members and beyond
- continuous learning
By living our values we will be responsive to the needs of readers, authors, and member institutions, share our liberal arts focus broadly, and engage globally with others in the exchange of new scholarship.
